I realize no one does photo journalism here, but i was wondering if anyone had suggestions or ideas on what to take. I plan on being there 4-5 days. So far i'm planning to take: ~20 rolls (36exp) of black and white film. (a few iso400, a few iso1600/3200) An old film camera with a 50mm f/1.4 lens. Extra batteries for it. Nikon D700 70-200 VR 35mm f/2 14-24 f/2.8 16gb + 2x8gb memcards 2 batteries for d700 + charger tripod small day pack large bag for the plane Voice recorder for interviews/notes a few days change of clothes A tent water filter, iodine tabs some dry food, MREs knife soap I need to find how to hire a translator and a place to stay. I'm going to call the local embassy and see where the white people are staying Ive sent a few emails to some of the photographers i've seen down there already but havent heard back... obviously it might be kind of hard to respond... I'm not sure if i should bring my laptop but i'm worried i might fill up 32gb worth of photos and not have room for more.
